The difference between ABS and non-ABS emergency braking
At a Lexus safety features event in Alameda, California, on September 16, 2010, a professional driver explains and demonstrates the difference between how a car performs with and without anti-lock braking.
EN | Mahindra XUV500 safe braking with Bosch antilock braking system (ABS)
Studies show that every 5th accident on Indian highways can be altogether
avoided by the intervention of ABS. Worldwide India today has the highest
number of road accidents fatalities. By 2016 India will become the third
largest automotive market in the world. Active safety systems like ABS help
maintain steerability and vehicle stability during emergency braking. In
Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Columbia ABS will soon become mandatory for
Mandatory ABS on Motorcycles?
Based on findings that antilocks significantly reduce motorcycle crashes,
including fatal ones by more than a third, the Institute is seeking a
federal requirement that manufacturers equip all new motorcycles with this

How To Diagnose and Replace a Bad Brake Caliper -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
Brakes are a common DIY project but I often get asked about brake calipers
and how to check if they're bad. This video not only shows how to find a
bad brake caliper but also how to replace it. It is recommended that you
do both sides when you find a faulty brake caliper but it's not necessary.
If you're on a budget you can just do one but you might experience a pull
to one side when braking if you do this. Otherwise you can follow the
steps in this video for caliper replacement. I use my 1997 Subaru Legacy L
in this video but the principals and techniques apply to many vehicles both
domestic and imported.

Secrets of Driving Like a Pro
You love driving, and you think you're pretty good at it, but how well can
you really drive? The chances are, whether you passed your test two or 20
years ago, you don't give too much thought to improving your driving skills
or the basics of maintaining your car; yet driving well can mean more than
just keeping you out of trouble on the roads.
How ABS (Anti-Lock Brakes) Work
A 3D video I wrote, storyboarded and directed. This video is posted
elsewhere but I'm the originator of the work.
Mercedes-Benz: Automated driving [English]
Mercedes-Benz have applied automated driving to conduct safety tests. Their
main objective was test their cars safety as if a human is driving it.
Parameters like speed, angle and timing cannot be simulated and it is not
really safe to risk a human driver during tests. Mercedes-Benz is the
leading manufacturer with regards to technological developments of cars. It
is known to assist in fast tracking the progress and execution of airbags,
three point safety belts, ABS, ESP and other automotive developments. Thus,
automated driving systems have been improved for test driving purposes.
Even though the said system has been used for some time now, they have
presently developed a program that would tackle additional driving factors
such as blind spot recognition systems, lane change warnings and night view
Mitsubishi L200's Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
Have you ever seen an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) in action? Mike Brewer
demonstrates how the ABS on the L200 makes a real difference when it counts
by regulating braking effort to prevent the wheels locking.
How a Differential Works and Types of Differentials
Video I created for Toyota in 2007. This was produced on a budget but its
purpose is to explain the concepts and not be a Pixar-budget film.
